Capitol Chat - In this week's Capitol Chat, Capital Public Radio's National Political Reporter Matt Laslo talks about California Senator Barbara Boxer's push to counter the Hobby Lobby Supreme Court decision. Plus, a Nevada senator wants to extend long-term unemployment benefits.
Sustainable Fish Farming - Farmed sturgeon from Sacramento's Passmore Ranch, which is known among the city's culinary scene for its exceptionally fresh fish, has recently been updated to "green" on the Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch.
Seafood Watch takes into account the sustainability and the environmental impact of the fish farms it grades, and "green" is the highest ranking possible. Joining us to talk about the achievement is Michael Passmore, owner of Passmore Ranch, and Sheila Bowman, Seafood Watch Manager of Culinary and Strategic Initiatives.
Starting A Winery - If you've ever dreamed of quitting your day job and starting a winery, you may reconsider after hearing the struggles of Beth and Ira Rosenthal, who started Uphill Vineyards in Amador County. But now, after years of hard work, their label has won three silver medals at this year's California State Fair. In honor of the achievement, we're re-broadcasting an interview with the Rosenthals from 2013 about starting their winery.
Swinging Easy On 52nd Street - After Prohibition, Manhattan's 52nd Street became the home all of the city's jazz clubs for the next 30 years. Every jazz musician of note played there during that period including jazz vocal legends Carmen McRae and Sarah Vaughan.
This Sunday, Sacramento jazz vocalists Cynthia Douglas and Vivian Lee are presenting a special show, "Swinging Easy on 52nd Street: The Music of Carmen McRae and Sarah Vaughan," in conjunction with the 11th Anniversary of the Sunday Evening Jazz Series at JB's Lounge in the Clarion Inn. The two musicians join us today to talk about the show.
